Arka Pana Church
A cross commemorating the death of B. Włosik shot by state security during the demonstration of 13th October, 1982 in the centre of the square. The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary Queen of Poland, so - called Arka Pana (Church of the Lord's Ark) was built in the years 1967 - 1977 following the design by W. Pietrzyk. It was the first new church to be constructed in Nowa Huta. Abundant with symbols, the building was inspired by the chapel in Ronchamp and resembles a boat with mast in the form of the cross. It has a two-level interior; at its upper level there is a marble altar in the shape of an open hand, a tabernacle symbolizing the universe, and a highly expressive Crucified Christ by B. Chromy on the wall. The stations of the Way of the Cross, designed by M. Lipiński, 1980 - 1983, are highly allegorical: they make reference to the latest history of Poland. The bottom level includes a number of chapels, including the Chapel of Conciliation, with sculptures by A. Rząsa.
